Resolving Boundary Line Disputes
Boundary questions often arise when a neighbor wants to build a fence or another structure, and the other party suspects that the structure crosses the property line. When it comes time to sell one property, boundary questions can cause serious issues with the transaction, so it is important to resolve the matter in an efficient manner.
Often, neighbors can resolve the matter without going to court through informal negotiation or by having a lawyer send a cease and desist letter requesting that your neighbor stop using part of your property. In many cases, a letter from a skilled lawyer demonstrates that you will not hesitate to take further legal action, and your neighbor might voluntarily respect the true boundary line to prevent a lawsuit.
If a lawsuit is needed, courts in California generally look to land surveys, legal property descriptions, and other available records. They also will examine whether the encroachment was undisputed and accepted for years, and might make an exception to the legal property lines in certain situations.
